Roadside Stand

There are roadside fruit and vegetable stands everywhere in Jeddah. You can just pull over and buy fresh tomatoes or cucumbers without having to go into a store or even getting out of the car if you don’t want to. The two men are wearing the typical traditional Saudi garb – the long white dress called thobe and the plain white or red and white checkered scarf called ghuttra or shumagg, respectively.

    Vegtables are much less expensive in SA than in, say, the UK. Better still, you even can haggle about the price.

    • You are absolutely right. The food prices here are amazingly cheap. My husband just brought home a package of six huge submarine sandwich rolls and the whole thing cost one riyal, which is 25 cents US. Most produce is extremely cheap here.
